Bobby & Rachel met via the phone through a mutual friend in 2003. They met while Bobby was attending Belmont University in Nashville and Rachel was in a leadership school in Kansas City. In August 2004, just eleven months after that first phone conversation, they got married.
Bobby grew up in a small town in Illinois. He comes from a close-knit and God-loving family. He has loved Jesus from a young age and has always had a passion for His purity and truth. Rachel was born in East Texas and grew up traveling as her Mom spoke in many churches around the world. Her Dad was the late Keith Green, who tragically died in a plane crash when her Mom was pregnant with her. Even though Rachel has suffered great loss, she has always known God’s deep faithfulness.
After college, Bobby’s dream was to play drums on an national arena tour. However, God had different plans! The Lord slowly began directing his heart towards the local church. Since 2008, Bobby and Rachel have served the local church in Kansas City. Bobby and Rachel’s greatest joy is being parents to their three children. They are so thankful to Jesus that He is leading their lives towards great redemption, healing, and hope. One of their greatest joys in ministry is to be available to people, hear their stories and love on them.
